Final regional EnercitEE conference in Lower Silesia attracts many participants

One of EnercitEE partners, the region of Lower Silesia, organized its final conference in Wrocław on 20th November. The topic was “Energy efficient buildings. Requirements, best practices and  recommendations based on experiences from EnercitEE.”


The conference aimed to promote knowledge, exchange experience and present good practices that affect the efficient use of energy and the sustainable use of natural resources in the building sector.

Representatives of Lower Silesian local authorities, subordinate units, universities, associations, firms and companies interested in the topic of energy efficiency in the building sector heard a number of presentations.


In addition to the account of EnercitEE achievements, given as a fine example of Lower Silesian activities in the field of improving energy efficiency in the region, a current status of the implementation of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive in Poland was presented, in particular with respect to the requirements for public entities. Participants also had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the role of energy efficiency in the Regional Development Strategy for the Lower Silesia up to 2020 and the priorities of the Regional Operational Programme for 2014-2020, with more than 2 billion euros available for Lower Silesia in the coming years. As a good practice the construction and working of the primary school in Budzów (Stoszowice municipality) was shown in details – an example of the successful implementation of Poland’s first public passive building. During the conference, a municipal energy expert explained the nature of his work, pointing to the large savings that a community can benefit from proper and responsible energy management. Participants also heard a presentation on the advantages and disadvantages of using different types of renewable energy sources in the construction of a modern energy-efficient residential building.
